Presenting to you, the fifth installment from Lex in Nepal – Gay Pride Nepal. A video that covers the second Gay Pride parade that took place on the 14th August 2011 in Narayangadh in Nepal. I certainly hope you watch the video. This was actually the first video that we filmed from the series of six therefore I would like to apologise beforehand for the crappy audio. I hope you like the intro animation.
And you know, talking about Gays, Transgenders, HIV and AIDS probably isn’t cool or as fun as watching this or that but this is what I choose to show, be it a destination that hasn’t been promoted well (Janakpur) or subjects that people are still wanting to avoid. If you can watch it then do so, if this simply isn’t what you wish to see then I’m not forcing you to view it.

19/12/2011 – Im enjoying reading the contrasting opinions regarding this matter and the encouraging feedback. Here’s one opinion which was a must share:
”Being Lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or Transgender is a part of someone’s identity. What’s wrong if one man is emotionally, physically, spiritually and sexually attracted to another man? what’s wrong if one woman choose to have sex and live her entire life with another woman? Why should one give a shit if his or her gender identity does not match the social expectation for the physical sex they were born with? Being born in a “Hindu Priest’ family and grown up in a cultural society I still carry all those Values and ethics taught by my parents and elders and will be carrying forever. But there is something vital than religion, more important than culture or tradition, more natural than social norms and values i.e, ‘human equality and social justice.” But homosexuality is yet to be considered as obvious and natural in our society and shame on those so-called educated and civilised youth activists who often chant the slogan of equality and diversity but shut their mouth when its time to raise awareness and advocate for ‘Same sex marriage’ . Nevertheless, I can see the hight of hope emerging from somewhere and I am proud of it. This is a video by Lex in Nepal- Gay Pride Nepal that covers the second Gay Pride took place on the 14th August 2011 in Narayangadh(Nepal). Would like to request all of you to watch this and if possible do share.
